GWTW Anniversary Party!

I can hardly wait for our Movie Addict Headquarters Gone with the Wind 75th Anniversary Party. The date? Tuesday, September 23. The place? BlogTalkRadio. Film historian James Colt Harrison and Classic Film Guide founder Diana Saenger plan to join in the festivities. Plus, Turner Classic Movies host Robert Osborne has been invited to call in. We will also play a clip from Cammie King Conlon’s interview about portraying Rhett and Scarlett’s lovely but doomed daughter, Bonnie Blue Butler.

Gone with the Wind, released in 1939, won 10 Oscars. It has been screened millions of times throughout the world. Fans of this beloved epic – who are called “Windies” -- continue to celebrate the movie with various GWTW conventions. In recognition of this important anniversary, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) has teamed up with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Fathom Events and The Harry Ransom Center for a multi-tiered celebration that includes a new Blu-ray release, screenings at over 600 movie theaters, an exhibit and new book on the making of the film, and a special screening of the movie on Turner Classic Movies. These activities are scheduled for the last part of September and early October.

The late Cammie King Conlon is the author of BONNIE BLUE BUTLER: A ‘GONE WITH THE WIND’ MEMOIR. She visited Movie Addict Headquarters a few years ago to discuss her delightful memoir, which is filled with fascinating inside information concerning what happened on and off the set, including what it was like to work with Clark Gable and director Victor Fleming. Movie fans should enjoy hearing Cammie talk about these experiences in the clip from her terrific interview.    

Gone with the Wind Anniversary Party!” airs on BlogTalkRadio at 4 p.m. Eastern Time ( 1 p.m. Pacific Time) on Tuesday, September 23, 2014. During the live show, listeners are invited to call in and to participate in a chat. An archived segment will also be available.
